Construction of sunroof rubber seals

Sunroof rubber seals are made of foam rubber. The most widespread are seals with U-shaped section within which there is a reinforcing metal rod. The outer seal side has a softer and smoother surface, which protects the contact spot of the sunroof cover and frame from chips and scratches. There is no need to use an adhesive compound at mounting such seals: they are put on the sunroof cover along its perimeter.

Operation of sunroof rubber seals

The seals service life depends on the manufacturing material quality and properties, and is usually indicated by the manufacturer. To avoid premature wear of the parts, you should adhere to the following rules:

  • keep the vehicle in the garage or in the parking lot, but not outdoors;
  • don’t use adhesives and sealing compounds for fastening the seal, if such a possibility is not designated by the spare part manufacturer;
  • regularly remove dirt from the seal using a clean cloth and water;
  • lubricate the seal with glycerin every three months on the average, to maintain its elasticity.
